Dread Tidings: A TMNT Lookback

This week, it's a retrospective of everyone's favourite sewer dwelling martial artists, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Also, I take a look at two of my most recent purchases, the turtle-baiting mutant rhino and warthog, Bebop and Rocksteady!

Episode 187

This episode sees Jii, Glenn, Sam and Phil having a good old natter about what they were up to (and what they were buying) whilst BTTE was off the air. The subjects, as always, are eclectic, ranging from Kamen Rider and Power Rangers, to Godzilla and even My Little Pony. Yeah. It gets THAT weird. There's also all the news that we can possibly cram into a 3 hour podcast, as well as an announcement about this year's Roll Out Roll Call. So what are you waiting for? Back to the Eighties - if this were prison, you would be up for parole about now.

Time to look at a true giant of the MOTU line - Trap Jaw! As James Eatock himself puts it, Trap Jaw is THE Man. But does his MOTU Classics figure match up to this billing?

This week sees the gang all present and correct! Join them now, as Becca spotlights Tin Tin in general, and the Nelvana cartoon series about his adventures in particular! There's also news, views, Glenn and Jii disagreeing about Hook, exciting Power Rangers news from Sam, Age of Extinction news aplenty, and Phil is almost broken by an almost surreal new Buck Rogers item... Back to the Eighties - if this were prison, you would be up for parole about now.

BTTE Extra with Glenn & Jeremy: GI Joe

Folks, it's time to say hello to an old friend. It's been a while, but Jeremy is back! In what we hope to be a regular monthly feature, he and Glenn are going to be going through the histories of some of our very favourite franchises. and charting their rises, falls, seeing them rise again from the ashes, and assessing where they stand today, and asking the question, "Where do they go from here?" To start off with, it's the Real American Heroes of GI Joe - YO JOE!

Episode 185

Phil's back, everybody! Yes, he's gone and got himself all married and stuff he has, and is now back to tell the tale! Meanwhile, Phil, Sam and Glenn check out and spotlight the 1978 TV series of the Amazing Spider-Man, and have a bit of a natter as to why that series didn't work but series like The Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman did. The guys also check out all of the news that's fit to talk about (including some very interesting Star Wars news), and answer a few of your questions on Facebook! Back to the Eighties - if this were prison, you would be up for parole about now.
